Kim Anderson Talks About Surprising Grain Markets Following Crop Plantings Reports

Kim Anderson Talks About Surprising Grain Markets Following Crop Plantings Reports

OSU Grain Marketing Specialist Dr. Kim Anderson says the markets presented a surprising mix this past week. He spoke with SUNUP’s Lyndall Stout on the markets’ odd gyrations in light of two reports which were released last week.

“We were concentrating on the plantings report. Corn came in at 95.9 million acres. We had expected 94.7, so about 1.5 million above expectations. Wheat came in below expectations at 55.9 million acres. We expected about 57.4. And soybeans came in at about 73.9 million acres which was below the trade estimate of 75.4.”

“You look at those numbers and you think, ‘Corn is going to be down strong. Wheat is going to be steady, maybe a couple of cents higher and beans pick up 15 to 20 cents.’

“What we saw was corn up the limit, 40 cents, on Friday, up another 12 on Monday, a total of 52 cents. Wheat was up 43 cents on Friday and beans were up 48 cents. The price increases were well above expectations.”

What caused the prices to go up?

Anderson says it was due to the fact that all the quarterly stocks reports were all below the trade’s expectations.

He says next week’s markets could be interesting as well given that the supply and demand estimates will be released next Tuesday. He says we’re looking at lower ending stocks for all three commodities.
